My latest DeHaan Services article, "The End of Summer 2012 Labour Day Weekend in Toronto", offers three suggestions for enjoying Aug. 31-Sept. 3, 2012 inexpensively but happily.

Mel Lastman Square is the venue for the 2012 Hispanic Fiesta in Toronto.

Toronto ArtFest 2012 takes over the Distillery District for the same Labour Day weekend.

Most appropriately, the 2012 Toronto Labour Day Parade will be held only on Monday Sept. 3rd. The parade marches "freely" along Queen Street and then into the Canadian National Exhibition grounds.

Promoting my 2012 Labour Day Weekend Article

As always, my Xanga blog ("A Trio of Toronto Events for Labour Day 2012") lends its suppor to my article.

One Laboured Writing Tip for the Labour Day Holiday

The current writing tip is about learning from your readers. More accurately, it's about learning from your readers' behaviour.

I'd noticed that my DeHaan Services article about where to celebrate Simcoe Day 2012 in Toronto ("The Ontario Civic Holiday: 2012 Simcoe Day Events in Toronto") had many page views. It seemed that people actually were seeking for something to do for the long weekend that begins August in Ontario.

My blog's goals include publicizing selected Toronto events. It's easy to list one per article; that would give the most emphasis to that event.

However, that makes it harder for anyone to use my site to learn about an event about which they know nothing.

Therefore, I decided to make a point of highlighting long weekends. Many people will need ideas for those precious days off from work.

You may have a different passion as your topic. The writing tip is to include, in your keywords and titles, the common phrases that your potential readers might seek. Do not focus on the "specific brand-name solution" that you're introducing; instead, do emphasize the generic problem that your reader already knows he needs to solve.

Even if it's as simple as finding the best Labour Day events in Toronto for 2012.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
